Mattis: U.S. ‘Still Assessing the Intelligence’
« Reply #721 on: April 12, 2018, 10:51:29 AM »

The defense secretary said the U.S. military is ready for all options President Trump deems ‘appropriate.’

Secretary of Defense James Mattis has split time throughout yesterday between the Pentagon and the White House, meeting both with his Dutch counterpart, Ank Bijeveld, and President Donald Trump.

At the onset of his meeting with the former, he was asked about the latter’s assertion that Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the alleged chemical attack over the weekend in Douma. One reporter asked what evidence Washington has to make the assertion.

In response, Mattis said:

“We're still assessing the—the intelligence ourselves, and our allies. We're still working on this.”

The retired Marine Corps general also said the U.S. military is ready for “all options” the president may deep “appropriate.”

Mattis left the White House following a meeting with the president, but no readout has yet been provided. During the press briefing, however, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said repeatedly that “all options” remain on the table.

Pressed further, she said she couldn’t “go into the details” about the intelligence but said the White House has high confidence in the assertions the president made earlier in the day.

New Potential War Zone Flares Up
« Reply #722 on: April 12, 2018, 09:49:21 PM »

China has staged a major naval exercise in the South China Sea following its annual Boao Forum economic conference.

With most of the world’s attention focused on the potential for war in Syria, China reminded everyone that it still has eyes on seizing Taiwan.

Immediately following the Boao Forum, China’s version of Davos, the People’s Liberation Army Navy began a three-day military combat drill in the waters off Hainan Island, upon which the tropical resort of Boao is located. Hianan is located on the South China Sea, not far from the disputed islands there.

The drill, which is set to conclude tomorrow, had been previously announced by the Chinese government. It involved the Liaoning, PLAN’s only aircraft carrier, and 40 other warships and submarines.

The state-run English-language newspaper Global Times explained the purpose of the drill:

“Beijing cannot be led by the nose. We have to figure out more fronts to showcase our strength and to be the venue for the battle with Taiwan.

“Meanwhile, the mainland needs to continue to prepare for a possible military clash across the Straits. A military showdown with Taiwan is becoming more probable and may take place sooner rather than later. Beijing needs to make clear its bottom line and inform Taiwan society of the dangerous acts which may lead to a military showdown, to avoid a war that could break out due to serious misjudgments by the US and Taiwan. Having got the upper hand strategically, the mainland won’t lose its head. Only the decisions of the mainland will count in deciding the future cross-Straits situation.”

China also recently conducted aerial combat exercises in the western part of its mainland territory to simulate an invasion of Taiwan. Also Tuesday, the USS Theodore Roosevelt carrier task force sailed through the disputed waters of the South China Sea en route to the Philippines.

When Will Russia And Iran Retaliate For The Attack On Syria? (TruNews)
« Reply #723 on: April 17, 2018, 11:40:28 PM »

Today we discuss President Trump's horrendous decision to use the West's Fake, False Flag chemical attack in Duoma as justification for a joint-US, UK and French military strike on Syria, an action historians may very well mark as the official beginning of World War 3.

Sephardic Jews Right of Return to Spain and Portugul - Conversos - Marranos

just as an aside the last time the Jews came to spain , it was as communists in the spanish civil war ...
The "republican" communists ,,, murdered priests and raped nuns ,,, burned churches .,..
these people ended up fleeing to France ...  Stalin in the thirties was in the process of de-Zion-izing the soviet system and history 

Also why Syria looks like the Spanish Civil war @!

The Jewish fighters of the Spanish Civil War
By Henry Srebrnik - July 25, 2016

...

[ both sides were ANTI CHRIST > ]

Troops from Spanish Morocco, known as Moors, played a significant role in the war. About 136,000 fought for Franco’s Army of Africa, the feared vanguard of a force that Franco portrayed as a Christian crusade against “godless communists.” It is more than a little ironic that the side claiming to represent Roman Catholic Spain employed Muslim troops, the very descendants of the people expelled from the Iberian Peninsula during the lengthy Reconquista that regained the country from the sultans who had ruled Spain for almost 800 years.

The Moors were known to be especially formidable. Former Moorish soldiers recalled the terror they inflicted on Spanish villagers on behalf of Franco. “We spared nothing and no one,” one recounted. “We uprooted everything and killed everyone we encountered… Horrified Spaniards attempted to flee as soon as they heard the words of our prayer.”

...
During the course of the conflict, some 41,000 volunteers from 50 countries joined them in what has been described as ‘the first battle of the Second World War’. Between 6,000 to 8,000 of the recruits to the International Brigades are estimated to have been Jewish, including nearly half of the Poles who went to Spain, over one-third of the Americans, and around 20 per cent of the Britons.

Jews did not only constitute a disproportionate number of the foreign fighters in Spain. It is estimated that 70 per cent of the medical personnel who volunteered to tend the injured were Jewish, with Yiddish often used in operating theatres as a common language.

In some respects, their story is a forgotten one. As military historian Martin Sugarman has argued, ‘the marginalisation of the huge part played by the Jewish fighters in Spain is due to the tight grip held by old-fashioned Stalinists who have been “Keepers of the Memory” of the International Brigades’. In the wake of the 1967 war Poland’s communist government went so far as to destroy memorials to the Botwin Company, a Jewish unit formed in December 1937. Part of the Polish Dombrowski Brigade, it was named in honour of Naftali Botwin, an 18-year-old Polish Jewish communist executed for murdering a secret police informant. Thus the communists’ fierce anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism trumped the reputation for heroism, encapsulated by the nickname ‘the red devils’, earned by the Botwin men.
...
Even for those Jews who were committed communists, the brutality of Stalin’s henchmen in the Brigades was enough to shake the faith of many. Born William Horvitz, the novelist William Herrick was a self-declared ‘red-diaper baby’. His parents – who had fled Tsarist Russia – were members of the American Communist party who hung pictures of Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky in their home. Their son was active in the Young Pioneers and later risked his life trying to organise black sharecroppers in the Deep South. Unsurprisingly, Herrick was among the first 100 US recruits to heed the party’s call to fight in Spain
...
For others, reality dawned more slowly. Moishe Stern, a Ukranian Jew who was an operative in Soviet military intelligence, arrived in Spain in September 1936 using a forged Canadian passport, adopted the name Emilio Kléber and became second-in-command to the International Brigade’s communist commander André Marty. Initially feted in Soviet propaganda as the ‘Saviour of Madrid’ for his role in leading the XI International Brigade’s effort to save the Spanish capital from a Nationalist assault in November 1936,

Kléber later fell foul of the jealousies and paranoia which wracked the Brigades’ upper ranks. Stripped of his command following later military setbacks – in truth, argues Anthony Beevor, he never ‘exceeded the level of a tough First World War commander who was unsparing with the lives of his men’ – Kléber was sentenced to 15 years hard labour. His name removed from Soviet histories of the civil war, he died in a Soviet gulag a year after Stalin’s death.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_volunteers_in_the_Spanish_Civil_War

Jewish volunteers in the Spanish Civil War refers to Jews who joined International Brigades and fought in the Spanish Civil War, which erupted on July 17, 1936 and ended on April 1, 1939.
...
The fighting was between the Republicans, who were loyal to the Spanish Republic, and the Nationalists, a rebel group led by General Francisco Franco.
...
... the Soviet Union and Mexico intervened in support of the Republican side
...
A minority of the Jewish population, particularly that of Europe, were active in socialist and Communist organisations in the period between the two World Wars.[1][page needed]

They made up a considerable portion of the socialist volunteers, with estimates putting the figure at over ten per cent.[2] Many of them joined the International Brigades and the Popular Front to fight in the Spanish Civil War on the side of the Republicans. The leadership of the International Brigades considered forming an entirely Jewish brigade,[3] but the high casualties made this impossible. However, a Jewish company, the Naftali Botwin Company, was formed within the Palafox Battalion.

—The fighting displaced millions of Spaniards. Some 500,000 refugees fled in 1939 to France, where many of them would be interned in camps. 15,000 Spanish Republicans ended up in Nazi concentration camps after 1940.

...
Outside Aid and Non-Intervention

Within days of the uprising, both the Republic and the Nationalists called for foreign military aid. Initially, France pledged to support the Spanish Republic, but soon reneged on its offer to pursue an official policy of non-intervention in the civil war. Great Britain immediately rejected the Republic's call for support.
...

Mass Violence

The Spanish Civil War engendered massive political violence, carried out by both sides on the battlefield and on city streets. The Nationalists included ultra-reactionary monarchists (Carlists), fascists (Falangists) as well as traditional conservatives, who viewed the Republic's supporters as “godless Bolsheviks” (Communists) who needed to be eradicated in order to create a new Spain. Franco's army also included Moorish troops from Morocco. The rebels portrayed the fighting as a “crusade,” a “holy war,” against a “Judeo-Masonic-Bolshevist” conspiracy. Antisemitic propaganda, including the notorious fictional work, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, circulated throughout the Nationalist-held territories. The Nationalists also tried to combat Basque and Catalan nationalism, which was perceived as a threat to national unity.

The Republican forces (Loyalists) too included a broad spectrum of political positions from moderate democrats, liberals, and socialists to more radical Leftists, such as Communists (both of the Stalinist and Trotskyist varieties) and Anarchists. On occasions, this coalition broke down into internecine violence.

The Spanish Civil War proved to be a breeding ground for mass atrocities, carried out by belligerents eager to eradicate their ideological opponents. About 500,000 people lost their lives in the conflict. Of these, about 200,000 died as the result of systematic killings, mob violence, torture, or other brutalities.
Anarchists and other radicals often took out their anger against the Catholic clergy, whom they saw as an obstacle to major reform. Almost 7,000 Catholic priests, monks, and nuns were killed, primarily in the first months of the revolt. By May 1937, most of the mass killings of priests by Leftist radicals subsided. Francoist forces too killed liberal-minded or Loyalist clergy.

The Nationalists waged a brutal war against the Republic's supporters. Republican women were raped or were publicly humiliated by having their heads shaved. By 1940, more than 500,000 individuals were rounded up and sent to about 60 concentration camps. Large numbers of prisoners were conscripted for forced labor or to fight in Franco's army or tried by military courts.

During the war itself, 100,000 persons were executed by the Nationalists; after the war ended in spring 1939, another 50,000 were put to death. Martial law remained in place in Franco's Spain until 1948, and former Republicans were subjected to various forms of discrimination and punishment.

Internal Displacement and Spanish Refugees


The fighting and persecution resulted in several million Spaniards being displaced. Many fled areas of violence for safe refuge elsewhere. Only a few countries, such as Mexico and the Dominican Republic, opened their doors to Spanish refugees. When the Civil War ended in 1939, with Franco's victory, some 500,000 Spanish Republicans escaped to France, where many were placed in internment camps in the south, such as Gurs, St. Cyprien, and Les Milles. Following the German defeat of France in spring 1940, Nazi authorities conscripted Spanish Republicans for forced labor and deported more than 30,000 to Germany, where about half of them ended up in concentration camps. Some 7,000 of these became prisoners in Mauthausen; more than half of them died in the camp.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5
